Planning of the Perdigão 2017 experiment

The purpose of this message is both to inform you on the two events and ask you to go ahead with your accommodation in Portugal, as soon as possible.

The three first days (May 10-12) will be the general meeting, while the last day (Friday May 13th) will focus on the detailed planning of the Perdigão 2017 campaign. There will be an excursion to the Perdigao site in the late afternoon of May 10th. A more detailed agenda, which will also depend on your input, will appear in due time.

Vila Velha de Ródão (the municipality where Perdigão is located) is a small village in the interior of Portugal with a limited number of accommodation facilities, which for our advantage have to be secured well in advance, see below.

Please forward this information to interested colleagues.
